Employee Assistance Programs (EAP) for Organisations


Employee Assistance Programs: for you and your organisation

Employee Assistance Programs provide employees with numerous services and interventions designed to identify, manage and resolve emotional, psychological and workplace issues that may adversely affect their health and workplace engagement. These issues may arise in many areas; some examples are physical and mental health, personal relationships, family interactions, financial issues, emotional states, or substance dependence concerns.

The aim of an EAP is to invest in your most important asset - your people. Enhanced wellbeing gives employees the energy and focus to generate improved performance and productivity and fosters a cohesive and rewarding work environment. The effectiveness of the proactive EAP approach has been demonstrated in reduced workplace absenteeism, staff turnover, and disability.
